let me tell you a secrete to buying any electronics...dont buy **** based on the type and color of backlight and LED they use because honestly..this is the least importent thing in ANYONES life.
for some keyboards, ive been researching my self. i didn't reead all the posts but i read yours. you seem picky. which is fine, you are who you are of course :) why not have what you want.
most my research has been around machanical keyboards. IE steelseries G6 and so on.
first, the AXIO levetron mech5, a very nice machanical keyboard with MX black keys (very stiff key unlike the MX red) ideal for pure gaming use, the red is a good hybrid key but is prone to missclicks due to its low force requirment to press keys.
so, my list is -
AXIO Levetronmech5 (my current top runner)
razor black widow (any style their allt he same thing)
those are the 3 im considering.
and my choice for you -
razer lycosa -blue LED's, media buttons, gaming layout, high quality build, good tactile feel to key strokes with low profile keys (one of my fav features on it) its the most ideal keyboard i could pick for ya based on what i read.
Going to have to settle with Logitech if you want a LCD screen, and backlit keys in a combo. The mechanical switches are a bit loud, though the feel is far superior to boards like the G15/G19. I used to own a G15 then tried out a Das MX brown board, the LCD screen is nice to have, but in my opinion doesn't compare to mechanical keys.
Not true. The newly announced Razer Deathstalker has a color touch LCD screen. While I love Razer, I don't think I could do a "flat key" keyboard like the Deathstalker has. I much prefer my (loud) mechanical keyboard. I have 2 monitors, soon to be 3, and don't really need an LCD on my keyboard.

this is funny to me, they finely got around to these eh? i saw a concept keyboard with this tech a few years ago, pretty much same price range, but i dont think it did well because of its price mark. just to much for people to pay, but cool concepts. im curiouse if this thing will splash and flop or if it will accualy get a following. does anyone know if its machanical keys or not?
I still love my Sidewinder X6 from Microsoft
:D go sidewinder. i love this keyboard, its breaking my heart that it's time for it to go. XD
